Freeware or shareware games for old iMac (256MB, either 266 or 333Mhz)? Especially first person shooters?
November 5, 2004 6:22 AM   Subscribe

I'm giving away an old tray-loading iMac (256MB, either 266 or 333Mhz, I really can't recall right now) to a friend and have loaded it up with productivity-related stuff. Now I'm looking for games I can download. Freeware and shareware, preferably, as opposed to warez (although if you care to recommend a NES/SNES/etc. emulator ...). In particular, is there a decent FPS I can download for this machine?

It's running Jaguar.

Da nun da nun da nun da nun MARATHON!

I don't know if it's OS X compatible, but the Marathon games are where it's at in terms of older macintosh FPS. Made by Bungie of Halo fame no less.

Yeah, I'm an old Marathon partisan -- long nights on the LAN in our apartment with our separate stereos cranked, to the delight of our neighbors -- although I am trying to avoid installing OS 9 on this if possible.

Marathon for OS X!
Still need the original disc, or at least the files off the original disc, or the files off the demo. But, hey, OS X.
